More new Aliens tie-ins from Titan Books

Titan Books has published a respectable collection of various Alien/Aliens-themed novels, movie tie-ins, and fun printed companions to what many consider to be the only worthwhile xenomorph movies (1-4). Not only is the publisher putting out completely new Alien short stories from authors who helped create the extended universe on paper, but Titan keeps churning out making-of and behind-the-scenes art books for movies new and old within the canon. Their latest is The Art and Making of Alien: Covenant, which takes a deep dive into Ridley’s Scott’s newest film. But wait, there’s more. As a few cherries on top of the xenomorph sundae, Titan Books continues to release omnibus collections of handfuls of extended universe novels that have been written over the years, and The Complete Aliens Omnibus: Volume 4 drops later this month. If you’re a fan of the film franchise, the alien itself, the space setting, or the extended universe, you owe it to yourself to dig in to the Alien/Aliens offerings from Titan Books.

Take a peek inside The Art and Making of Alien: Covenant and order your copies of the first three The Complete Alien Omnibus books after the jump.

BLACK PANTHER teaser trailer drops us into Wakanda with its new king

First Black Panther teaser is the trailer you’ve been waiting for

Black Panther was arguably one of the more intriguing and exciting characters in Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War, so fans of the growing franchise were salivating for a Black Panther solo movie as soon as they got their first glimpse. A brand new “teaser” trailer for the upcoming Black Panther movie made waves around the web the other day, and it’s easy to understand why. With five-second teasers flooding the scene, Black Panther’s almost-two-minute trailer is more a first trailer than a teaser. Sink your claws in, get a good look at a few characters, and keep your eyes peeled for more Black Panther marketing material to come as the movie ramps up for an early release next year.

Watch the first Black Panther trailer, read a plot synopsis, and check out the movie’s first poster after the jump.

MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS trailer and poster preview a classic remake

Murder on the Orient Express trailer teases a star-studded cast

Murder on the Orient Express teased us with a poster yesterday and followed up with a trailer premiere this morning. The new/remake movie looks just like you’d expect an Agatha Christie adaptation to look, regardless of whether you were a fan of the 1974 film or not. Kenneth Branagh sets the stage with his accentuated accent as “probably the greatest detective in the world,” and all the player pieces are put on the board in a short-but-sufficient trailer tease for the upcoming remake. It’s going to be a little difficult for Murder on the Orient Express to escape the remake/reimagining/retelling stereotype, but the star-studded cast may help this one pop up on people’s radars as it approaches a November release date.

Have you seen the first film? Read the original novel? Looking forward to this update? Watch the first trailer, check out the new poster, and read a short plot synopsis for Murder on the Orient Express after the jump.

Everyone might be a replicant in the new New Blade Runner 2049 trailer

A brand new full-length trailer for Blade Runner 2049 dropped this morning, further teasing the sequel to Ridley Scott’s sci-fi icon. Thirty-five years later, director Denis Villeneuve (Arrival, Sicario) aims to advance the story using both fresh and familiar faces. The visual style from the original is present, the trailer’s dripping with tension and uncertainty, and Villeneuve has an impressive track record–all signs point to Blade Runner 2049 being something special. Here’s hoping the movie lives up to the growing hype.
